Barter Your Way To A Cheap Wedding
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I have a friend who has been a wedding officiant for years, and has assisted couples in arranging many beneficial deals essential to designing not only a stunning, but cheap wedding. This has come by establishing a network of reputable people he has come to understand and trust. You also can have the wedding of the dreams, at a fraction of the cost, when you stick to these suggestions and tips on how to barter your way to a terrific, but cheap wedding.

1. Most wedding officiants have their very own network of sources. Find an officiant who has a network such as this, ask if you can tap into it and see what they've to offer you!

2. Speak with loved ones and associates about solutions they can provide. For example,  does Uncle Joe really like to take photo’s? He could be a great help with what you need! Barter with him and see if he could act as your wedding photographer in leiu of a wedding gift.

3. Trade your own services. Do you personally own a business or possess a unique skill that is advantageous to the wedding service you need? Offer to provide your service in exchange for the service you need. Trading solutions such as this can be a win-win scenario for both sides and goes even further to planning the cheap wedding you desire.

4. Research before you start to barter. Make certain that you are conscious of what the normal rates are for the items and/or solutions you might be bartering for.  Get a quote from a few suppliers first on corporate letterhead. This provides you with a concrete bartering tool, as well as the real worth of the service you are bartering for.

5. Be truthful about your price range! There is nothing to be ashamed about wanting a cheap wedding and by being specific about your budget up front, you actually pave the way to getting what you want, for the price you want.

6. Barter free advertising in exchange for the service you require. All businesses and services need advertising - especially within the competitive wedding market. However, advertising is very expensive! Use this to your benefit and save money. As an example, offer to add your florist or photographers name onto invitations, thank you cards, and seating cards. In return, your florist or photographer should give you a discount.  Bartering for advertising is most often the best way to achieve a cheap wedding.

Hopefully a few of these suggestions are beneficial to your wedding planning. To have the beautiful, yet cheap wedding of your dreams, decide your price range, stick to it and barter your way there!
